Why it's important to stand up to bullies

video

Today in inquiry we were discussing how to speak up and how to speak out if someone bullies you or you see someone being bullied. People who are being bullied should use their WITS and stand up to themselves. Sky, Nickaela, Hajera, Zahra and I have made this short film about standing up to bullies and how to help a victim of a bully.

Zookeeper


In careers we took a test which asked what we were interested in. It gave us the option of not interested, neutral, fairly interested and very interested. Depending on what you answered they will analyse how many jobs that you could do or could be interested in. I got 125 jobs in total which was a lot of careers to choose from. I picked one job that I think I would like which was a zookeeper. The site that we were using is called Careers Quest.

Hyperbole


Our focus today for writing was hyperbole. A hyperbole is when you use extreme exaggeration in a sentence. For example "My heart was pounding out of my chest", that is impossible but it is used to express an emotion. I wrote a story about "A hunted alleyway" home that includes at least five hyperbole. I found that putting hyperbole into my writing can make it more interesting.
